Pedestrian cases can be very challenging for a number of reasons.
- First, there are often complicated legal questions arising from the conflicting rights of ways between pedestrians and vehicles.
- Second, a pedestrian's injuries are often extreme, with little physical evidence available at the scene of the accident to help determine exactly what happened.
- Third, pedestrians frequently don't have a good recollection of what happened as they often have disrupted memory due to the force of the impact.
It is imperative to preserve as much evidence as possible following a pedestrian accident. We have investigators who will get statements from the witnesses to your accident so that their evidence is preserved. We also hire accident reconstruction engineers (when necessary) to survey the scene of an accident before it is altered. The engineer will also inspect the damage to the vehicle involved in the collision in order to preserve the evidence. This allows our engineer to reconstruct the accident if ICBC denies liability on behalf of the driver who hit the pedestrian.
